HIGH SCHOOL

Flight objectives.

The iFLY STEM Program for High School aims to instill the following in students:

  • Learn how STEM is used in the real-world.
  • Draw and interpret free-body force diagrams.
  • Understand the nature of fluids and how they exert forces on solid objects.
  • Derive equations to represent physical phenomena.
  • Apply engineering principles to think about tunnel design, energy efficiency, and safety factors.
  • Understand variability, uncertainty, and error in experimental results.
 

See the power of the wind.

Watch physics in action! Students will witness flight instructors interacting with objects in the wind tunnel.

They will then discuss how the size, shape, and weight of an object affects its speed in the tunnel.

Simulate and test terminal velocity.

In this classroom experiment, students will predict their own terminal velocity using measurements and algebraic reasoning.

After flying, they'll compare their predictions to their actual terminal velocity in the wind tunnel and brainstorm reasons for any errors.
